In case you are wondering??? The work going on at the Lyle Park Place is preparation for the pavilion that was funded by last year's Economic Development Grant, and will house several picnic tables. This will be a shaded place for everyone to enjoy as they spend time in the park. Work will continue on Thursday afternoons at 3:00 until the project is complete. If the volunteer spirit overwhelms you, show up and lend a hand.

This past weekend our local RV Club, "The Sundowners" camped at the Lewis and Clark Park near Bonneville. There were 15 members in attendance. One of the members had a rig breakdown and for some reason found that this put a damper on their weekend.

On March 20, the Skyline Foundation and WAAAM (the airplane museum in Hood River) will host an all-abilities and all-ages ping-pong tournament-fundraiser supporting health care in the Gorge. This will be held at the museum in Hood River. For more information or to register go to

The Country Cafe will be closed March 21. The owner is hosting a benefit luncheon and Bingo to help Darryl England with medical expenses incurred during his recent illness. It will be at the Lyle Lion's Club from noon to 4 p.m. There will be lots of great Bingo prizes and all proceeds will go to aid one of our own.

The Community Council meeting will be held on Monday, March 22, at 7 p.m. at the Lyle Lions Club. The full agenda will be posted around town sometime this week.

American Red Cross CPR and First Aid classes will be held at the Lyle Activity Center on March 29 and 30. Cost is $25, and to register please contact Risi Howard at 541-980-0790 or

The banner is up for the annual "Lyle Clean Up" which is quickly approaching; it is held on the second weekend of April. Remember this is free to you, but your monetary donation will help support projects of the Lyle Community Council.

History (New section of U.S. 830 dedicated at Lyle June 22, 1967): "Rep. Hal Zimmerman of Camas emphasized the convenience of the new road as well as the safety factors. "The straighter road will bring Lyle and Bingen so much closer together, as it will bring Camas and Goldendale closer together, a road I have traveled frequently during the past year and will continue to".

"Following the program and ribbon cutting, highway officials led a procession of cars over the new road and into Bingen and White Salmon."
